Actually that's the one thing it's still good for; reading books. My ePubs were stored on the external SD card so they were not lost. I can continue to read them once I re-import them into the built-in Kobo reader app. (Note that this only works for non-DRM ePubs. If they have DRM they will be ignored and not imported with no message given.)
But, having been zapped once I don't trust it anymore and understandably won't spend much time setting it up and installing more apps since it could happen again at any time.
So, fwiw, my final solution to all this is to basically abandon the VOX and buy a RIM PlayBook - same size, similar price, but functionally wayyyy better! It's the one I should have got in the first place. Live and learn!
